Prepare to be thunderstruck!
History lessons are, by nature, elongated and tedious affairs full of facts and figures and not much else, but when you combine history and live music things become interesting and entertaining. Fast.
Such is it with The AC/DC Story, a three hour plus interactive performance that documents the life and times of one of Australia's finest ever musical exports.
The show takes you on a journey from the humble beginnings of the legendary band through the Bon Scott era and the fallout from his death, through to the many highlights with Brian Johnson at the helm.
The AC/DC Story succeeds where others have failed through the use of visual mediums such as film clips, interviews, and rare photographs, combined with a live performance from Accadacca in selected increments, performing songs from each album and adding an authenticity to the show that takes you back to the days when this cheeky group of Aussie underdogs defied all odds to reach the summit of rock and roll.
It is a show that will inform and entertain, with the famous bells from 'Hells Bells' and the cannons from 'For Those About to Rock' making a welcome return.
It is an all encompassing spectacular that tells the story of AC/DC with music and allows you to actually feel and enjoy the journey from a unique and rewarding perspective.
Accadacca have been belting out all of your favourite AC/DC tunes since 2000, with vocalist Larry Attard having supported an up and coming AC/DC in their early years as well as... well you will just have to catch the show to hear the rest.
